Default BB 8530 text input issue after installing .654

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, all.

I promise I searched the forums before posting, but I can't seem to find anyone else who's had the same problem. First off, I have:

Phone: BB 8530
Service: Sprint
OS: 5.0.0.654

I upgraded from the OS it came with about two weeks ago, and it's been uneventful except for one maddening problem. I use predictive text for input, and ever since I updated the OS, I've noticed an occasional glitch. The best way I can describe it is, let's say I'm typing the word "driving". If I type out d-r-i-v-i the predictive feature will show in highlighted font the entire word "driving". So when I click the trackpad button to accept this suggestion, it will occasionally fill in the full word AND bring up the menu, highlighting the "send" option.

It's as if I click the trackpad button twice.

It sounds like a hardware issue, but it never happened with the old OS, and it only happens occasionally now. It's irritating as hell when it does, because I then have to click the escape key to get rid of the stupid menu so I can continue typing.

Has anyone else had this problem? Does anyone have a suggestion? I'm considering reverting back to the old OS, though I'd like to try everything else first.

Thanks in advance!

Joe

Hi,I have had the same problem since the same upgrade. It will only do it with certain words, like when I am typing in my email address for, example, registering for a web page. I type the first few letters, then it auto fills the second part of the email address and starts to load the next page as if I double clicked to send. No clue how to solve this problem.

Well, I'm glad that at least I'm not the only one.
